NFL announces 32 compensatory picks

The NFL announced today that 32 compensatory picks have been awarded to 23 teams for the 2011 draft. The complete pick-by-pick draft order can be seen here.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks .

The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four.  The 32 compensatory choices announced today will supplement the 221 choices in the seven round draft, giving the 2011 draft 253 selections total.

Compensatory picks cannot be traded.

The Carolina Panthers, due to the free agent loss of Julius Peppers (and quarterback A.J. Feeley) was rewarded with the highest compensatory pick this year. They were given a 3rd round selection, No. 97 overall. The Panthers also received the most picks total, earning three more selections.

The Baltimore Ravens, Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans each received two compensatory picks.

19 teams awarded compensatory picks

According to release by the league, 19 NFL teams will get a total of 32 compensatory picks for free agent losses last year. These picks will be in conjunction with the selections teams already owned for next month's draft.

Eight teams were awarded multiple extra picks, with the New England Patriots leading the way with four picks. The Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers each getting three compensatory picks.

The Cincinnati Bengals might have gained the most, however. While they "only" received two picks, they were awarded a 3rd and 4th, whereas the Titans, Steelers and Patriots were mostly given picks from the last two rounds.

According to the release:

Under terms of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks .

 

The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four.  The 32 compensatory choices announced today will supplement the 223 choices in the seven rounds of the 2010 NFL Draft (April 22-24).  This year, the compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

 

Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.  The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council.  Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula. 

 

Three clubs this year (Oakland, Miami and Tampa Bay) will each receive a compensatory pick even though they did not suffer a net loss of compensatory free agents last year.  Under the formula, the compensatory free agents lost by these clubs were ranked higher than the ones they signed (by a specified point differential based upon salary and performance).

 

Thirty compensatory picks were awarded to clubs based upon the compensatory pick formula.  By rule, two additional choices were awarded at the end of the seventh round to bring the total number of compensatory selections to 32, equaling the number of NFL clubs.  The two additional picks were awarded to St. Louis and Detroit based upon the 2010 draft selection order.  


This is the breakdown of the compensatory picks by round and team.
